Burns Supper

Burns Supper

Every year around the world people celebrate the life and mission of Robert Burns with a special evening together with friends featuring food, dance, whiskey, fine company and speeches. Burns and his poetry belong to the whole world.

Robert Burns is the national bard (poet) of Scotland. He lived at the same time as Mozart, and promoted themes of friendship, equality, joy of life and aspiration. Burns represents much of our school’s values.

This is an occasion for all, regardless of your home language or native culture. It is a chance for us to get together and enjoy each other’s company informally.


Drama Evening

We are pleased to invite parents to the first Drama Evening at Embassy School.

Typically, Drama has been part of the Summer and Winter concerts and an opportunity for the pupils of Lower Secondary to perform the pieces they have rehearsed during the preceding terms.

However, as the school has continued to grow and the concerts have becoming longer to accommodate this, it became necessary to have a dedicated Drama evening to give our pupils the full benefit of the joys of studying, rehearsing and performing a piece, with an attentive audience.


Friday, 21st June, 5.30pm

In the Assembly Hall

All parents of years 7 -9 warmly invited. Others welcome to cheer on our budding actors.

Green Camp 2019

It is an opportunity to spend a week engaging in outdoor activities and integration games.

All further details can be found in the detailed calendar or the email from the office.

Music and Poetry Salon

On the 22nd of March, Time to be announced, in the Assembly Hall

“This Music and poetry salon event will give students from year 5 and upwards the opportunity to showcase their talents.

Years 5 – 10 have been holding in-class contests to find the winning recitation of a poem and the winners will perform at the salon. 

They are learning poems off by heart in order to develop this skill so that poems become part of them.  It is also an essential skill for exam success at GCSE.

Pupils will also be performing as groups or as pairs.

The theme of the salon is “The Music Makers” based on the poem by O`Shaughnessey which Elgar set to music.

For the music portion of the evening, we are hoping the secondary choir will be able to perform, along with some classwork and videos from the music classes yr 5 and upward. There may also be individual performances by pupils taking piano and violin lessons.

It will take place in the assembly room, where the space is “intimate”…just how it needs to be for shy people who haven’t done this kind of stuff before.  It also somewhat prepares them for the rigours of a performance in a less known space.” Penny Turner

TEDx Event

Date: Thursday, 14th March 2019

Time: 18.00 – 20.00

Venue: MAK Cafe Przemyska 5, 31-036 Kraków

Some of the toughest decisions we ever have to make in life, unfortunately, don’t come with a user’s guide.

Choosing a university major is undoubtedly one of these decisions. Although there is no right way to choose a major, there are concepts and exercises that can help us to make a decision that is right for us.

There is no best university, or perfect major, there are majors that are suitable for us – the goal of this event is to equip you with the tools to help you focus on what is important, on the exercises that can help you to listen to your inner voice and narrow down the most important aspects when choosing a university major.

You don’t have to be applying to university this year to enjoy this event, many of the themes we will be touching upon are connected to universal themes of that apply to us all.

High school pupils, university students, professionals, parents – all are welcome!

Burns supper


We would like to invite you to the 3rd annual Burns Supper which will take place on Saturday, March 16th at 18:30 at Avangarda Restaurant (Mikołaja Zyblikiewicza 1, 31-029 Kraków)


A Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and work of Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland, and an important figure in the literary world, an international figure who represented many of our values as a school community.


The evening features music, poetry recitals, odes and toasts and, of course, whisky. 


A Burns Supper, most importantly is about having fun together and enjoying each other’s company. This year we have moved to a bigger venue in order to add an extra activity – some Scottish Country Dancing in the form of a little ceilidh. We will have a short display on how to do this and then have the opportunity to dance together.


Mrs Magdalena Bobrowska accompanied by our Primary music teacher Malgorzata Marchwiana will present some songs by Burns.


Lindsay Davidson and Benedykt Walerowski will present some bagpipe and drum music.


Celtic Dance Group Comhlan will give a Scottish dance display followed by a ceilidh.


Here are photos from last year so that you can get an idea of what to expect:
